Format: Paperback
I am very disappointed in this book. I was looking for leadership games to share with my management class. Of the 50 games listed, only about 10 deal directly with leadership skills and traits. The rest are general ice-breakers, productivity boosters, and team-building games. And, in my opinion, none of the games are worth more than what you can find for free on the internet. For instance, one game encourages you to develop a slide presentation of photos and ask your group about first impressions of people. It is a good idea for a quick game but the book doesn't provide any photos. It took about 45 minutes to read the entire 160 page book. So, if you can pick up a used copy of this book for a couple of bucks, you may find a few useful ideas that you can adapt to your own work.

If you're searching for a book of group games that are productive and fun, then search no further. This book has a wide variety of exercises to meet almost any meeting goal.

I used several of the exercises in this book to facilitate a strategic planning session. The result was a productive and fun meeting in which the organization was engaged, producing a plan that was able to move the group towards greater success.

The book is well organized making it easy to find games which fit with the goals I was trying to achieve. The instructions were clear and complete. There are tips for maximizing the use of the games, also. I'll be using this book, often.

Teaching people and businesses how to manage and lead change. [...]

I bought this book for use with my high school band leadership camp. There are some great team building activities in here and it also includes some worksheets to copy and hand out. It is certainly not all-inclusive, but it is a great start when looking for activities to motivate a group of people who need to work together to work towards a common goal.
